MANIAC FASCISM: New Zealand Food Bill To Make Growing Food A Government Privilege Rather Than A Human Right

NZ food bill to make growing food a government privilege rather than a human right (Natural News, Dec. 7, 2011):

The God-given human right to freely cultivate food is under attack in New Zealand (NZ) as special interest groups and others are currently attempting to push a “food security” bill through the nation’s parliament that will strip individuals of their right to grow food, save seeds, and even share the fruits of their labor with friends and family members.

In accordance with the World Trade Organization’s (WTO) Codex Alimentarius scheme for global food control, the NZ Food Bill, if passed, will essentially transfer primary control of food from individuals to corporations under the guise of food safety. And unless massive public outcry and awakened consciences within the NZ government are able to put a stop to it, the bill could become law very soon.

According to NZ Food Security, a group working to protect the food freedom of New Zealanders, the bill will turn growing and sharing food into a government-granted privilege rather than a human right. It will also make it illegal to distribute any type of food based on the bill’s language. This includes seeds, nutrients, natural medicines, minerals, and even water — without expressed government permission.

You see, agribusiness giants like Monsanto want full control of the food supply, which means putting an end to small-scale agriculture systems that operate “off the grid,” so to speak. This is why they have worked so hard in places like the US to convert conventional, staple crop systems to genetically-modified (GM) ones that are continually reliant upon new seeds and chemical interventions.

As far as enforcement, the NZ bill also authorizes private companies to deploy “Food Safety Officers” that can raid private property without warrant. Not only will these “Food Safety Officers” be permitted to draw weapons against those they are pursuing, but they will also be immune from criminal and civil prosecution for their illegal actions.

What all this means, of course, is that the NZ government may soon be able to arbitrarily decide at any time to restrict individual freedom to plant vegetable gardens and share the produce with their neighbors, for instance. Even “cottage industries,” which include at-home food artisans, could be restricted under the new law.

  1. I agree absolutely with the principle of growing and sharing food. there can be good reasons to be cautious.
    food production involves the use of many very dangerous chemicals for both the growing and the processing of food. some chemicals have with holding periods from several days to several weeks betwen applying chemicals and harvasting the crop. So then how about allowing biologically grown foods to be unrestricted? There are many fungi, smuts and molds that infect vegetables and more particularly grains that can make people very sick or dead. Microbes associated with dairy products, fish, poultry and red meat can be deadly.
    We usually associate the small scale and informal trading of food to be a neighbourly socially bonding activity and feeling assured that we know where our food comes from. Unfortunately not every one is as trustworthy or informed about foodhandling as we would hope them to be.
    The reason for passing the legislation may well be to place food production, distribution and sales into the monopolistic control of global corporations.
    The concerns outlined above may be used to justify these monopolistic controls. The concerns may be addressed by existing controls and legislation. In arguing a case to prevent global corporate control of food we need to show that we already have controls in place to address these issues or that controls can be put in place that still allow vibrant trade and movement of food supplies within informal community scale economies that improve the reslience to poor communities in times of uncertainty. I am on your side.

  2. The people of New Zealand desperately need to slaughter the ruling class and kill everyone who is right of centre on the political spectrum. The Human race needs a culling, and the conservative/fascist group is the first to go.
